21 December USDJPY Fundamental Drivers Outlook
The spot stalled its corrective slide from one-week lows and staged a minor-rebound last hours, closely following the USD price-action against its main competitors. The status-quo maintained by the Japanese central bank on its monetary policy settings combined with the unchanged economic assessment capped the recovery mode seen in the Yen against its American rival, now pushing USD/JPY back towards the midpoint of the 113 handle.
Moreover, the recent strength seen behind the Treasury yields across the curve on the US tax cuts approval also keeps the bullish tone intact in the major. The 10-year Treasury yields rose to 9-month tops of 2.502%, as the US House tax vote passage battered the Treasuries.
Focus now shifts towards the BoJ Governor Kuroda’s press conference due later at 0630GMT ahead of the US final GDP, Philly Fed manufacturing index and jobless claims data.
